Job Description

Do you know how to stop a sophisticated cyber threat? So do we.

Fortune 500 companies don’t need more cybersecurity; they need better cybersecurity. That's where you come in. Working with us, you can help to protect some of the world's biggest companies and keep their assets safe and secure.

About you

You offer clients the kind of security that will help them sleep well at night. You’re a creative problem solver, always thinking ahead and spotting risks. Like a digital detective, you uncover and prevent cyber threats to protect businesses from risks they may not even know they face. You’re as happy to work independently as you are supporting junior colleagues.

About the role

The Security Analyst is responsible for closely working with enterprise architects and resources to identify and mitigate risks, perform security reviews, design credible security practices, and deliver strategic, creative cloud-based security offerings. The Security Analyst is accountable for securing enterprise information by identifying network and application security requirements, planning, implementing and testing security controls and procedures.

On a typical day, you’ll:

  • Monitor the use of computer files or intellectual property to safeguard access to information
  • Evaluate vulnerability and threats with clients, regularly performing required audits and tests
  • Design and implement security-related tools and services by using and adapting existing methods and procedures
  • Communicate with project teams about what’s required for process and technical improvements
  • Work towards your team's goals within the strategic direction set by the project
  • Travel as needed.

Your skills

You will know all about Azure security offerings, networking, application services, databases and storage solutions, and love working with Microsoft applications. You’ve probably got a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Information Systems, Information Security, or another relevant field.

  • Forward-thinking interpersonal skills; you can persuasively express your point of view whether it’s through a written or face-to-face presentation
  • Knowledge of and interest in Microsoft security technologies and strategy
  • Some experience with identity and access management principals, architecture and security management or securing network and enterprise cloud applications.
  • Knowledge of Enterprise Mobility and Security Suite (EM+S), Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Intune
  • Knowledge of Azure Key Vault, Azure Security Center, OMS
  • Proven implementation of cloud security models, particularly identity, network, and encryption
Applicants for employment in the US/Canada must have work authorization that does not now or in the future require sponsorship of a visa for employment authorization in the United States/Canada.
